Modification Request Form

Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation encourages and promotes inclusive leisure experiences in all of our programs, activities, sports, classes and events. Inclusive leisure experiences encourage and enhance opportunities for people of varying abilities to participate and interact in life’s activities with dignity. We also provide an environment that promotes and fosters physical, social and psychological inclusion of people with diverse experiences and skill levels. Inclusion enhances individuals’ potential for full and active participation in leisure activities and experiences.

If you would like to request a modification, please complete and submit a Modification Request Form.
